In December, the United States government issued an advisory advising people to avoid renting a car from Iceland because of a ban on cars registered in the country.
The ban, which has been in place since 2013, was introduced in response to a spike in car theft in the nation’s capital, Reykjavik.
Since then, the number of cars stolen in Iceland has nearly doubled.
However, people in the region, especially in the capital, have had trouble finding cars they can afford, making it more difficult for them to rent them.
The government has also warned that people should exercise caution when using the internet to book car rentals.
Here are five ways to avoid buying a car.
Get a credit card instead of a car card.
There are plenty of options for car rental in Iceland, but most of them are credit cards.
When you rent a vehicle, the car is yours.
If you’re a car rental company, you may need to pay a fee for a credit or debit card.
That fee is typically about 5 percent of the cost of the car rental.
But it’s possible to get a credit line for an up-front fee, and many rental companies offer free parking.
That’s because Icelanders can’t use their credit cards to rent cars, and so they can’t rent a used car.
If they want to rent an SUV, they can use their own money to pay the deposit, but they’ll need to have the vehicle in good condition.
Choose the right car rental agency.
The best way to find a car is to visit your closest car rental agent, and if they offer a car-rental credit line, they’re probably the best option for you.
There may be a fee to use the credit line but it’s generally not a problem if you’re willing to pay it.
Some car rental companies will provide an online credit card or credit check.
But many don’t, so you’ll have to use your own money.
Be prepared to pay more than you might expect.
While the cost is relatively low, you’ll be paying more than the amount you’d pay to drive in a rental car.
Many car rental agencies will charge an upfront deposit for the car, which is normally about $1,500 for a car with an MSRP of $40,000 or more.
That deposit can vary from as little as $500 to as much as $5,000.
If your car is not in great shape, you might have to pay another $500 upfront for repairs.
Choose a reputable agency.
Some of the most popular car rental websites are listed below.
Some sites have more stringent standards than others.
Some offer low-cost rental agreements, while others don’t.
If the car you’re looking for is advertised on one of these websites, make sure you visit it to see if it’s the right one for you, as some of the companies may be able to waive the upfront fee.
Find a car that’s safe to drive.
When renting a vehicle from a rental company in Iceland and renting a second vehicle, it’s a good idea to have your insurance policies up-to-date, and it’s also important to pay your own insurance premiums.
Insurance companies will usually charge you a small percentage of the purchase price for the vehicle, so if you don’t have an annual policy, you can negotiate a lower price with them.
If it’s expensive, ask for a deposit.
The deposit for a rental may be much less than the rental price, but it can still be a deterrent to people looking for a cheaper option.
If a rental agency will charge you $5 for a vehicle you don´t want, or you’re not able to use cash, you should ask for $500 for the deposit and a car insurance policy.
That’ll help you cover the upfront costs of a rental, and a deposit can help you get a car if it breaks down or you need to replace it.
If that isn’t an option for your budget, try to get another car or a carpool or two.
The rental agencies and car rental cars can be more expensive than renting one of the larger rental companies in the U.S., so ask the person you’re renting from about the rental rates.
If all else fails, try the car-sharing program.
The car-share program in Iceland allows people to rent out their cars to other people.
They have different rates and prices, but there are no car insurance requirements.
They can offer a free car, and the vehicles are insured.
Car-sharing programs are popular in certain regions, like in Iceland.
Car owners can even rent out cars and pay for maintenance or repairs themselves.
